Fall is kicking into high gear. The last couple of days we've fished the shallows of Smith and Tangier. We had good numbers of rock and even a couple of specs and blues mixed in. We casted sea shads around stumps and other structures to get our bites. There is a nice class of fish around but the seemingly endless stream of 19.5 inch fish doesn't fill a limit of 20+ inch rock. Today we were fortunate enough to limit out but it toke a lot of throw backs to get there. Don't forget MD muzzleloader season starts on Thursday and we've got everything you need to bag that big buck including muzzleloaders, accessories and deer corn. Stop in and we'll make sure you've got what you need!
As the sun broke over the Smith Island marsh to reveal clear skies and calm winds, a victory and blessing were evident. The water had dropped 10 degrees since we last pounded the rock laden banks of the island but the fish are still there. We had good numbers of rock on our points where current rips formed but our best fish came from deeper creeks from within. The fish preferred a slow presentation with the paddle tail hopped over the bottom. Braided lines and 3/8 oz H&H heads helped get the sea shads in the strike zone. Most of the action was on the last of the flood and even more so on the first of the ebb.
